    I worked at Telefónica full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It's a huge company, so the number of opportunities is huge - and there are generally plenty of opportunities to move onto something new and usually with a meaningful budget

    Cons

    Very political - and driven from Madrid. As the stars of the senior management rise and fall, there is a reorg every 6 months - and you can suddenly find yourself +/- 2 levels in the org chart (which matters a lot!)

    Advice to Management

    The management talks a good game on change and becoming a digital business, but doesn't always match the words with actions.

    Pros

    Good for the people tough not so advance HR policies, just normal.

    Cons

    Telefonica is an organizational mess, amazingly complex, unbelievably inflexible, and irritably slow. The making decission process is impossible. The hierarchy is too vertical, too many hierarchical levels. You must learn to live with that.

    Advice to Management

    You must make it simpler.
